Little Miss Blacksmith

For a commissioned project in New Orleans I had the pleasure meeting a wonderfully talented Blacksmith Artist, Rachel David, who contributed to the renovation of a boutique Hotel ( La Pension) located on Decatur street in the French Quarter. As we watched Rachel navigate through the forging process of hammering and shaping a single metal rod into what would become a sculpturing flower, one can only appreciate the amount of grit, sweat and energy that went into the work of art that now adorns the lobby of Club La Pension (see photo at bottom).
